Opaque black, thin brown head. Smell is rich, leathery malt with a bit of coffee. Taste is smooth, not sweet at all, slightly bitter. More roasted flavors coming out in the finish, drying mouthfeel.

Bomber pours an opaque dark brown with reddish edges and a small tan head. Aroma is somewhat muted, and mostly roasted malts, with some nuts and perhaps a touch of citrus. Taste is slightly bitter all the way through, with the hops and a wisp of smoke coming out in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. Not difficult to drink, but nothing substantial or outrageous.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 At Taproom. I didn’t get any citrus and wasn’t very lagery. Maybe an ale version of the beer? Other than that it was a nice beer and enjoyable. Serving: Tap

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown to black with a medium sized tan head. Sweet roast on the nose, chocolate and cocoa over plum and dark stone fruit. Medium bodied, roast and stone fruit. A touch of paper and then long roast and sweet fruit into the finish. Lingering roast.

Bottle shared around the table at Revolution Brewpub. Dark brown, amber highlights, tan head. Nice deep roast character, a kiss of citrus hops. Medium bodied. A great schwarz!

Poured for me by Cleetus at Fountainhead, in May. Zesty malt smell. A thin layer of tan foam on a schwartzer body. Aroma is guiding the taste, which is a dry stout more than a lager. Citrus hops, like everything these days, but malts become the main feature here. A nice dry finish topped with a bit of orange zest. Not exotic at all, just a very nice dessert beer.

Comb the dessert is a black patent malt roasty dark beer. This dark black pour was quite a decent roasty schwarz that had a somewhat acrid bitter quality to it - alright.

12oz pour at Kinderhook Tap. Opaque, near black with a 3-finger light tan head and good lacing. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, mild hops. Taste of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, light citrus, nuts. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. Solid brew!

Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Black bodied with a khaki colored, creamy looking foam perched up on top. Aroma has lots of moderately sweet baker’s chocolate up front with a lightly creamy & milky aspect alongside it. Notes of brown sugar, roasted malt, & faint anise are also present. Lots of cocoa on the palate as well, although backed by a more robust malt roast than the aroma would indicate. Some dark, bruised plum sweetness, a light milkiness, faint char, & even a hint of must towards the back-end. Mouth coating of some dry cacao beans, roast, & a dying kiss of cream. Pretty nice schwarzbier. My buds must be off, because I didn’t get ANY citrus from this, although it is typically a little sweeter than most beers of this style. I enjoyed it.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, roast, faint burnt notes, and a hint of black licorice. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of dark chocolate, faint caramel, and a hint of black licorice. The finish has moderate roast with a hint or burnt flavors. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
